Shipping Containers for Hire Make Great Work Site Camps
Shipping containers are incredibly versatile. Converting them into cute, small homes has been well covered by the media over the past several years. What many people may be unaware of, though, is that there are shipping containers for hire already fitted for use as a house. Perhaps more function than form, these mobile camps can be easily assembled when work begins and then taken apart when the job is done and it’s time to move on. There are many benefits to businesses that consider this type of set up including the following.
Provides Privacy for Workers
Long projects away from home working and living in close quarters often invite tension. Shipping containers provide opportunities for privacy and quiet escape from the work, noise, and other people on the crew. These quarters can be set up with sleeping areas, work areas, small kitchens, and bathrooms – making them homes away from home for the men and women living in them. They can even include creature comforts like television – and necessities like air conditioning.
Because shipping containers are so easily mobile, they provide versatile accommodations. This means they can be moved from one work site to the next according to need. When work on one site is winding down, workers can be sent ahead to new projects and work sites while a few remain on to finish the job. For those hiring containers, they can be returned to save money while others are finishing the job. It is not all or nothing, in other words.
Beyond Sleeping Quarters
Refrigeration units are also available to provide cold storage for foods and industrial kitchen units are available to offer a safe location – away from the sleeping quarters and costly equipment, to cook for a crowd. Food storage units are also available to serve as dry goods food storage. Other sites to consider include centralised laundry with commercial washers and dryers and shipping containers fitted to offer showers and toilets for those preferring not to have them in individual sleeping quarters. Then there are units for getting work done – from office containers to workshops.
Whether interested in shipping containers for hire or prepared to purchase shipping containers to outfit a remove work site location, it’s hard to beat the versatility and easy convertibility of shipping containers.
